Sensu Go MSSQL Check


This is a Golang native check for MSSQL. Using denisenkom/go-mssqldb.

This is pretty simple, it was to help diagnose a problem a customer was seeing with API calls that relied on an MSSQL database.

It just returns 0/1/2 and outputs the times in InfluxDB metrics format.


All configuration is via arguments or environment variables. -1 means those checks are disabled. If no checks are enabled, this is just a metrics check. All times are in nanos. So you probably want to specify warntime/crittime as 1000000000 for 1 second.

The Sensu Go mssql check



sensu-go-mssql-check [flags]



-C, --connstring string MSSQL Connection String (MSSQL_CHECK_CONNSTRING)

-c, --crittime int MSSQL Query Critical Time (MSSQL_CHECK_CRITTIME) (default -1)

-r, --desiredrows int MSSQL Query Desired Rows (MSSQL_CHECK_DESIREDROWS) (default -1)

-h, --help help for sensu-go-mssql-check

-q, --querystring string MSSQL Query String (MSSQL_CHECK_QUERYSTRING) (default "select 1")

-w, --warntime int MSSQL Query Warning Time (MSSQL_CHECK_WARNTIME) (default -1)
